Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
3 stars An early Yes single is a collectors delight on vinyl so a must have if you can get your hands on one.

These two songs are form the first decent yes album though not a classic, "Time and A Word".

'The Prophet' is a progressive 6 and a half minute mini epic with some stand out guitar and keyboard; this is the B side single version.

'Time and a Word' is another of the classics and a must for Yes and prog fans - pure genius and one of the best tracks on TAAW.

2 killer tracks on vinyl single are a great taster for newcomers to Yes, but the best material was yet to come. If you see this in a second hand store you would be well advised to snatch it up without hesitation.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Originating from Yes's brilliant yet wildly underrated album of the same title, Time And A Word is a sweet and gentle song with a catchy chorus. There's barely a hint of prog on this track, but Jon's (surprisingly low) vocals and Squire's bass are just perfect. The orchestra near the end help to give this track a symphonic feel. The end drags just a little bit, but otherwise this a great song.

On the B-side is, in my opinion, the best track from the album, The Prophet. This version is a slightly different mix to that heard on the album, with orchestral parts missing in places and, dare I say it, slightly clearer drumming. Also, there are added vocals in the last 30 seconds that weren't there before. Otherwise, all 6 minutes of this mini-epic is here. This track is just as progressive as anything the band would write in the future, but is more concise. For example, this track has an extended instrumental: the lyrics don't start for 2 minutes.

I have to say, I do like both these tracks, with the latter being my preferred song. For a collector, this single on vinyl would be a marvellous addition to their collection. The single version of The Prophet can be heard on the Rhino remaster of 'Time and a Word'.
